MAYDAY #1-4 (Curt Pires / Chris Peterson)

Un scénariste drogué et un serveur transsexuel essaient de sauver Los Angeles d’un culte sataniste qui s’apprête à sacrifier de nombreux innocents sur leur petit parcours en forme de pentagramme.

C’est ce qu’il se passe lorsque le scénariste Curt Pires (Pop!) rencontre le dessinateur Chris Peterson (Grindhouse: Doors Open at Midnight, Grindhouse: Bled In, Drive Out) sur la mini-série MayDay.

What is it?
Fresh off buzz-books THEREMIN and POP, Curt Pires delivers this madcap, transgressive adventure that reads like a Hunter S. Thompson supernatural shoot-em-up.

A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult’s plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they’re just plain batshit crazy. Probably both.

Why it’s awesome:
Pires is already a red hot writer for smart readers in the know, and we think this book will jettison him to being comics’ next great mad scientist writer. Peterson is coming off GRINDHOUSE where he honed the energetic and lurid b-movie look that makes MAYDAY roll likeFear And Loathing In Las Vegas meets Pulp Fiction. [/quote]

A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult’s plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on Armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they’re just plain crazy. Probably both. The latest project from Curt Pires sees him teaming with art sensation Chris Peterson for a story that cuts to the very center of Hollywood mythology and depravity itself.[/quote]
